Lunchtime concerts are somewhat of a tradition here at Bedford School and are quite simply a sublime series of classical music concerts performed every Thursday, at 1.00pm, in the Recital Hall of our Music School.
What is more, they are open to the public so anyone can come along for free and enjoy live classical music in beautiful surroundings – a wonderful way in which to find a moment of escape from the hustle bustle of the school day.
The first lunchtime concert of 2020 was performed by our music scholars on Thursday 16 January and featured a diverse spectrum of pieces including a soulful cornet solo of Sparke’s Soliloquy performed by Daniel Hutchins, the rich voice of Caleb Sanders who sang Purcell’s If Music be the Food of Love and the scintillating sound of Michael Lee who played a note-perfect performance of Chopin’s Raindrop Prelude on the piano.
Director of Music, Mr Joss Sanders, said, “Our lunchtime concerts are always the highlight of the week here in the Music School. Every boy has the opportunity to perform to a public audience at least once a term, and our lunchtime concerts provide the perfect setting for them to do this. It’s always lovely to welcome our regular audience members as well as some new faces.”
